Wayne Milazzo and Don Comontofski were working for large consulting firms in the southern California area. We met at a client in 1999 working at a dot.com company implementing Dynamics GP ERP. The client approached me (Don Comntofski) and said we love working with you, but we don’t like working with your company executives you should go into business yourself and partner with Wayne Milazzo. I think you would be a great team. As time went on we thought about it more and more and realized we had the same philosophy of business which was different from the companies we were working for. We both put a high value on treating our clients business as the way we would want to be treated. We understood that implementing ERP systems can be a complex process and that businesses deserved a company that they could trust to be looking out for their best interest. We had seen companies being taken advantage of by consulting firms and were committed to being a different kind of consulting company.
